When you export address book and/or messages from Outlook Express, where does it go, and what is the name or extension called. I'd like to get a backup of messages and address's, but am not sure where to look.

I'm running outlook express 6 on win 2K prof

Thanks

Thanks for the link.

I want to archive mail and addresses within Outlook Express 6. I want to place those messages and a copy of my address book in a safe place. I.E. DVD with other detailed info, or 2nd drive.

Outlook Express Freebie Backup has been taken offline. I am making changes to the program and will reintroduce it at a later date. Meanwhile, Outlook Express Quick Backup will remain online. The intent of the program remains the same, to be able to backup a system's Outlook Express files and settings in case of some unfortunate accident. It is not a program for transferring OE from computer to computer unless you wish to do a bit of editing, which can easily be done if you are savvy enough. If you just need to be able to transfer the DBX files to another computer, it of course will back them up so you can IMPORT then into the second system.

I think the Outlook Express Backup program should do the trick. Otherwise you can export your address book to a .wab file etc by using the export option on the file menu.
